Transformation is often the inspiration Bloom’s work. Finding beauty in the imperfect or impermanent, acknowledging moments of change, and engaging with the process of transience form the basis of both her two dimensional and three-dimensional work. Thus the name "Wabi-Sabi."
Bloom’s process is guided by the mix of planning and chance that her materials offer to the imagery. Over time she has developed her own method of working with wax and heat on organic and synthetic fabrics and papers. In the last six months she has added paper-making to the transformative process.
Bloom is drawn to the ambiguity of forms that go in and out of resolve as you move around them. She is interested in the chaos that comes out of even the most predictable. While much of her work is sculptural, she also works in a variety of two-dimensional media where she can address her passion for color.
